Use prammo, aim at sides or back or other weak spots. Duck is also very tricky. I did take a DW2 down yesterday, which was very satisfying.

The main problem I find is with the accuracy; one in four shots might hit a weakspot, if you're at a safe distance.

You are aiming wrong then, because Valentine ATs gun plate is paper like FT AC has for example.

The T40 is a bit of a bugger, too, but prammo again.

​What's happened to the reload time? it's nearly 10 seconds, I'm sure this was half the time yesterday!

​Read the news earlier and it's stated the change from around 3.44 seconds reload to over 10. I've only done 100 battles in it but thought the gun reload was the only thing going for it.

I played like 18 games in the Lowe today after the update and I was low tier in all of them. Had anyone else experience this thing?

I’d been playing it without howitzer but now with reload measured in aeons I’ve put the howitzer on it and trying to play like kv2 but teams are so awful it’s not going well ;).  I recently got kv2 and I am smitten, ok it’s more affection than true love like me Duck but these ridiculous, slow, almost impossible to aim gunned tanks seem to be ta hing for me

Personally I hear the Maus needs a serious gun buff.... I get armour is what the Maus is all about but for such a big tank you would think it actually be scary....

 

Imagine the Maus fired similar to the KV2.... Excessive long reload but major alpha.... Lots of people complaining about the Maus, haven't tried it yet but definitely going to be my first tier X tank... ( Learning curve for days :(

Since the last update (and even before this update), the matchmaking was funny for me.

 

Sometimes I was in low tier game ... and some day ... I was top tier for many games ... I don't know why ... but it's not a bad thing for me.

 

It's weird ... but that's the challenge ... Like the day I manage to be on the top list of my team (i was in low tier) ... showing to everyone the Lowe could be a very good tank against tier 9 (thanks my Kolobanov's medal ...).

+3+ mm to AT 2's frontal hull armor please?

 

EDIT: Maybe to all sides, because enemy tier 6 lights and mediums shot and destroyed me from on top of the hill in Middleburg while I was facing them from my team's spawn site.

Don't stay at spawn. Especially when you can be shot from above. AT 2 is an assault tank, not a sniper.

I tried it as an assault tank in tier 5-6 battles, same results with the worst one being versus a SU-100 at close range. And my T82's Gun 105 mm AT Howitzer M3 needs +120 damage.

I didn't mean YOLO... and the T82 has plenty of damage, but I'd like mine to have better reload, aim time and dispersion for the derp gun. However, it won't happen, so I just need to play better.

The Löwe needs a little bit more armor and a slightly faster reload on its gun

It just cannot compete with other heavy tanks like that qua armor.

Against tier 7 it is a great tank but against tier 9 you shoudn't be infront.

 

Most people do not know how to play the Löwe.  I  had a 58% wr in it till i met real noob in my team whom brought it down to 55% wr. And i have played over 700 battlles in it. Most of the times i do between 1700-3000 dmg per battle by playing it 2nd line.

 

The tank is not easy to ace, i keep getting 1st and 2nd class medals for it.

 

Valentine AT is easy to kill and it could take a gun buff to compensate that although i have mastered this tank.

AT-2 was mastered within 16 battles with a crew of 87%......

At start of the battle find a sniping position and make sure you can fire your gun without any pauses. Than when 3 or 4 enemies are dead, go and assault them. I did this and had 1900 dmg and 5 kills. I didn't use the derp gun because it is inaccurate for shooting over great distances.

In my opinion, the AT-2 doesn't need a buff.

Just make sure they cannot get behind of you.

You have an average damage of around 1400 in your Löwe, so I guess you need to rethink your claim of doing 1700-3000 dmg per battle ;) realising your own skill level is the first step to improving your gameplay. I think 55% with that average damage is actually quite good, as it is less than your own hitpoint pool...

Pz II J is useless even in tier 3 battles ... AMX 38 will destroy it every time ... Tier 4 battles ... best to stay in spawn & hide ...

That's why I hope they will buff it. It is unplayable now.

I dont like so many nerfing and buffing in every update, some players buy and keep all the tanks, its ok for them, but most ppl including myself have a limited garage and keep a few tank they like or are good at playing them,this means mostly op tanks. Before sp coming to blitz that was ok,if wg would nerf a tank and buff another, you simply could sell yours and buy a newly buffed one.Now you have to sell a compeletly equipped tank and buy one without any equipment and start again the excruciating process of gathering enough sp for your new one.

Then kill the other reds and leave the AMX 38 for your team to kill.  Tier 4 battles, either cap the base to distract the reds or make yourself a meatshield for your team.
